Ralph Northam Is Virginia's Best Gun Salesman Ralph Northam Is Virginia’s Best Gun Salesman Posted at 12:30 pm on January 18, 2020 by Cam Edwards Share on Facebook (239)Share on Twitter AP Photo/Steve Helber Virginia gun sales soared in December as tens of thousands of Virginians stocked up on firearms, ammunition, magazines, and more in the wake of the Democrats’ takeover of the state legislature in the November elections. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports gun sales in the last month of 2019 were the second highest in state history...... It’s my belief that most of these Virginians buying new guns, mags, and suppressors are doing so because they don’t intend on complying with the law and are prepared to engage in a non-violent act of civil disobedience. We’ve seen this in New York with their SAFE Act and in New Jersey with their magazine ban. Honestly, why should we expect anything different in Virginia? These laws are virtually unenforceable, unless it’s an add-on charge against someone arrested for a violent crime. We shouldn’t be surprised if compliance rates are absurdly low. We also shouldn’t be surprised if gun sales continue to skyrocket in the state of Virginia ahead of the July 1st effective date of any gun control legislation that gets signed by Gov. Northam. If December of 2019 was good enough for the number two spot, look for June of 2020 to set a new state record for gun sales.
